Full description
Get an express lesson in British history on a guided walking tour of two of the most important institutions in London. Start your tour by admiring the House of Parliament from Westminster Bridge. From here, your guide will bring you under the famous Big Ben where you will hear about its construction and how the modern work will safeguard the 167-year-old tower.

Next, stop at Westminster Abbey, ranked among the world’s great churches. The abbey has held numerous coronations, from William the Conqueror in 1066 to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Marvel at the Gothic architecture of the historic monument and be brought up to date with tales of the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

After exploring Westminster and marvelling at the Jewel Tower, make your way to the entrance of the Houses of Parliament and explore the hallowed halls at your leisure with an official audio guide. Get to grips with the customs and conventions of parliament, and the astonishing architecture of key parts of the building, including the 11th-century Westminster Hall. See where the Queen puts on her ceremonial robes for the State Opening of Parliament, enter the glorious House of Lords, and much more.

Our guide, Marny, was very, very knowledgeable and delightful. Enjoyed the Abby with her. Just wish you could offer a private guide in Parliament.
